 Question 321707: I am having a lot of trouble with this problem, and cannot get it to work out. After going through several different methods I could think of, and each time getting a different and wrong answer, I still don't see how the answers of -1 and 6 are calculated. From what I remember, the first thing is that (y-9)(y-9)(y) is the common denominator, and so all is multiplied by a factor of one in that form, canceling out all denominators, which would leave us with 6(y-3)(y) - 2(y-3)(y-3) = 7y+3(y) This becomes -3y^2 - 9y - 18 = 0 And then -3(y^2 + 3y + 6) = 0 I cannot factor this, and so in using the quadratic formula I end up with a crazy number that is not the solution given on the practice test. Any help in figuring out where I'm going wrong would be much appreciated. Click here to see answer by Fombitz(13828)
